The month started out a little rough with Baby E getting her first cold with a fever. Luckily the fever stayed low and other than being a little sleepier and a little crankier, she was herself. Her illness also came just as I was getting back to work from being out because of my Dad's surgery, so trying to manage the whole working mom with a sick baby thing stunk. My husband is a great Dad and takes amazing care of her, I just felt guilty not always being the one with her. I think the whole thing was harder on me than on her.
Baby E also got her first bath in the big girl tub. She seemed to enjoy playing in the water. We still normally bathe her in her baby tub because she gets slippery, but this was a fun treat for her. I can't wait to take her swimming.
Solids are going pretty well and Baby E loves to eat. We normally feed her some take on our meal unless we are eating something completely not baby friendly, like sandwiches. I make it all, but normally send more traditional style baby food with her to daycare because it is less messy. Her new favorite thing is black beans cooked with garlic and spices. She also loved French Toast.
|Yeah...sometimes we feed her in a diaper and bib...easier clean up.|
We finished the month with a trip to Magic Kingdom to celebrate my birthday. We had tickets that expired in a couple of weeks, so we wanted to make sure they got used. Here she met Mickey for the first time. She wasn't so sure about him. I thought the talking Mickey was pretty cool. It will be interesting to see how she does with the characters as she gets older.
|I think she had fun!|
